Nope. Was having a look on the rockstar website and saw it. To watch it you have to go through age verification. I know complete plebs, such as yourself, would struggle to fill in those details so I youtubed it so its more simple for simpletons like you.

This looks amazing and can't wait til it comes out. Have they named a date yet? Heard it would be some when between November this year and April next year... Looking forward to this more than I was looking forward to GTA4.

About the weapons and things, awesome.

Love the bit where they say you can go about things in different ways, if you wanted to you could kill the entire town and make it into a ghost town. But it would re-populate overtime. Or you can play cards, lose at it then shoot the person you lost to and re-take your money. Can't wait!

I didn't think I was bothered about this (I've never been massively keen on Westerns) but it's got some pretty impressive reviews. Also, I've now just about completed Episodes from Liberty City and have loved GTA4 (which sounds very similar) so will probably give this a go...

St Marco
19-05-2010, 12:13 PM
Reviews wise it is at 95% metacritic making it the 3rd highest rated game this gen on ps3 (1st is GTA4, 2nd Uncharted 2) and 5th highest game on 360 (GTA4,Bioshock,HL2,Mass Effect 2).

Gamespot gave it a 9.5/10 score just now too

Someone's done a comparison here:
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=21355476&postcount=704

Xbox360 looks slightly better than PS3 but judging by the screenshots, I'm not sure it's really going to alter the experience that much...

St Marco
19-05-2010, 09:50 PM
Basically the guy's at 3d beyond (pixel junkies) have confirmed that the PS3 version is running at 640p. Which means it is sub HD. Translated into english means it is running at a 20% lower resolution then the other version.
If you look at those pics you linked you can clearly see a difference and tell which is which without needing to see. The top one is a lot clearer. lighter and crisp. While the bottom one look's more dark and slightly blured.
The actual experience will be identical regardless of what version you get. But the problem is Rockstar seem to always do this, GTA4 was the same. For some reason they cannot develop for the PS3 as other developers can (i.e Square Enix,Konami). We are almost entering the 5th year that PS3 has been out. You think with all that time they would get it done by now. I am still getting it for PS3, and at least we get some extras that 360 doesn't get for a week :)

It is something to do with the way the games are engineered, i believe i read somewhere that the way the XBOX has been built has made the software engineering to be completed twice as quickly as the same project on the PS3.

I know this was a major reason for all of the Xbox only titles when the two originally came out but i am not so sure now.

I would imagine it is Rockstar being lazy tbh. But then, if you look at it from their point of view, why spend more man hours by upgrading it to atleast run at 720p on the ps3 when you will sell to the ps3 audience regardless ??

Am i also correct in saying that as of yet there are still NO games that natively run at 1080p for the ps3 ?? Most are just upscaled.

True,

Which is a real pathetic form of snobbery tbh, i bought the ps3 because most of my mates had a ps3, i really couldn't care less.

Also when you look at the ps3 it is a cheaper overall package.

Does the manufacturer actually mean diddly ??

So as you can see it is not just the color difference, that you can maybe accept. They have actually removed a lot of the vegitation and actual objects from the PS3 version.
It is a lousy port by the looks of it. I think i might swap my copy for 360 version.

I really can't see why people are getting the ****s with this.

So what if there are minor differences in quality. Is anyone other than the most anal really going to worry about this in the middle of the game?

20-05-2010, 10:21 AM
Played it for 4 hours last night. Not overly impressed really. Finding it really difficult to understand who the main character actually is - whether he's a nice bloke or a complete psycho. Also riding horses everywhere is a pain coz if you put your foot down for too long they get f*cked off and buck you off. There's a lot more times when you need to shoot someone from horse back than from a car like in GTA and I'm not sure they've mastered it. Good graphics and an awesome map though. I think I just need some more time to get into it but at the moment everything you're expected to do I just thing *ughhhhh effort*

They have definitely back tracked and got back to San Andreas gameplay instead of GTA4

By that logic we would never progress in technology. It is like tape vs cds. After paying loads of money to replace your tape player with a cd player wouldn't you expect your cd to be cd quality? The song is the same just one sounds better then the other. The same goes for vision. If you went into a shop and saw a saints shirt for 40 and next to it was a slightly faded one would you buy that version over the normal looking one? They are the same shirt? Same principle to games, you expect multiplatform games to be equal.

Ok i got my copy today for my PS3. Thus far really enjoy it but only an hour in.
I got the limited edition version which comes with all the dlc.

So bunged mine on ebay :)

St Marco

Ok well have played it for a good few hours now. And think it is one of the best games i have played! It reminds me a lot more of San Andreas then GTA4, which is a good thing.

Some really really random things happen.

Like your meet random people all over the place. I bumped into a carriage stopped on the side of the road. A man was flagging me down, as i got closer i could see dead bodies on the floor. The guy flagging me down was a Marshal who had an accident. The dead guys on the floor where some prisoners he was transfering. He said 2 had escaped and could i go bring them in.
So off i go. I laso them in turn and bring them in and they are tied up on the floor. The Marshal say's thanks a lot and gives me cash in typical Rockstar tradition when completing a mission. As i walk off to gt back on my horse i take one final look at the carnage on the floor and with that the Marshal pulls out his gun and shoots the two alive prisoners in the head! I could not believe it. He then got on one of the horses and buggered off!
The game is full to the brim with these type of things. They are not missions as such just random events that can happen at any time in any place. Awesome game!

When you do the horse breaking in mission with bonnie early in the game she gives you the lasso. To use it you just press L1 then select it on the left. Then aim with L2 as if you were aiming with a gun. When your close enough to your target press R2 to fire while still holding on to L2. Always keep hold of L2 if you don't the target will escape.
Then while holding l2 walk up to the target and press triangle and you will hogtie them. You can then pick them up and carry them or put them on your horse!

Like roping someone, hog tying them, then leaving them on train tracks for a train! Or if you leave them in the hills and put bait near them you watch what happens :P

Getting into it a bit more now. The lasso is awesome, although I can't for the life of me get the bait to work. I was carrying some poor bloke around for about 2 hours last night on the back of my horse trying to get wolves to eat him. I ended up putting him on the train track which reduced him to nothing :)

I'm hoping that as you explore you find some bigger towns as Armadillo is the biggest place on the map at the moment which is pretty darn boring. I don't like it as much as GTA, but then again I guess I shouldn't be comparing the two.

I notice next to the gunshop in Armadillo there is a barbers which is closed. Does anyone know if you can go in there later in the game and get your hair cut? I prefer having a nice tidy player.

I think Rockstar have taken a big leap back towards San Andreas, however I think they still have room for improvement. This is certainly more fun than GTA4 but I don't like the storyline anywhere near as much. I think San Andreas is by far the best Rockstar game ever.

Is anyone else having problems with glitches and bugs or is it just me?

I took out my brother's USB wireless non-PlayStation controller and the number of glitches seemed to reduce, strangely, but still sometimes the horse freezes, judders, carries on in a straight line into the sky, a rock, the ground or whatevers in front of it, before getting stuck. Also, dialogue sometimes disappears leaving me with 2 people having a lip reading contest. The game becomes unresponsive at times too. The glitches sometimes makes it impossible to play and complete missions, due to Marston and Marston only freezing. It takes the fun out of the game. This is all on single player btw.

Could it be my PS3? Should I take it back and get another copy?

Great game though.

L1 on PS3 = LB on 360

This game is absolutely bloody brilliant. Full of action, the scripted sections I've seen so far are both brilliant in script and acting, and it looks fantastic as well.

You hold L2 as you normally would to aim and press R3 (push the right analog stick in). This slows everything down to make it easier to aim.
Don't hold R3 - just press it. To come back out again, just press it again.

It is an utterly fantastic game. If you liked GTA4, and you like the wild west setting, then you should love this.

But whether it's worth shelling out 1/3 of your monthly wage depends on what else you were planning on spending the money on!

Sounds like a plan! I haven't ventured into multiplayer yet (want to get fully to grips with the game so I don't just get owned continually) but will be keen for this soon...

I'm having problems with the loading screen freezing everytime I exit the multiplayer. Seems like a few people are having problems with the game if you google it.

I've been in multiplayer once, couldn't exit it at all. I'll take my game back on Monday and get another one. At least that way I can determine whether it's the game or the hardware of the PS3. F*CKING ANNOYING :rolleyes:

It is an utterly fantastic game. If you liked GTA4, and you like the wild west setting, then you should love this.

But whether it's worth shelling out 1/3 of your monthly wage depends on what else you were planning on spending the money on!

Cheers for the reply, it does sound like a bloody good game, i'm a massive fan of the GTA series.
I've got 30 for my phone bill, then 40 on top of that for the game leaves me with 50 for the rest of the month. Do-able perhaps.
Having said that, I can net myself 50 if Italy win the WC this summer, so I could recoup my money!

Went to Game today and the manager there happily exchanged the disk but said it was probably my PS3. I went home and turned on the PS3 and a message came up saying "Hard drive corrupted" so I went along with what it said and reformatted it and restored it, only for the whole thing to die.

Now when I turn on my PS3 nothing happens, the game will go in alright, but you just get a blank black screen.

Looks like I'm gonna have to buy a new PS3 then, unless anyone knows if I can fix it?

I've heard that when you trade it in at Game, the check isn't particularly thorough (i.e. they turn it on to check it's not dead and that's about it). I appreciate trading it in may not be 100% ethical as there's a chance someone could end up with your old knackered ps3, which they would then have to return.

Trouble is I thought GTA4 was over-hyped, and average at best. Loved some of the earlier GTA games, but the last one.....just could not get on with it at all. Would not say it was ****e, but it got traded back to Game pretty quickly.

So....how does the gameplay of RDR compare? Think I'll like it?

Well I went to gamestation yesterday and traded in GTA4 (which I thought was alright) and Skate 2 (which was utter utter ****) and by complete luck found out you get an extra fiver off when you buy RDR with 2 games traded in...top top it off I got the last copy of the game in stock- I couldn't beleive my luck!

Anyway, I've only played it for about an hour so far but am bored already. Shooting rabbits, herding cows and catching horses isn't exactly hugely exciting. I assume it will pick up later in the game so will give it another bash later tonight.

The bits you dont like are just the tutorials - missions to teach you the controls etc. Get past that and it gets much better.

As for getting around quicker, there are trains, stagecoaches and you can make camps to help with that.

I always set a waypoint just before i get onto the stagecoach for exactly where i want to go, this includes bounty targets etc.

The game though is epic, though once i complete it i can't see it having much more life for me, and for that reason i am trying to complete as quick as poss so i can sell for as near to what i paid as possible.

Just finished the storyline missions. Very good ending. My only complaint is that many of the missions were very similar (ride on your horse, shoot a gang of bad guys in the countryside, ride home) - some more town shootouts would've added a bit of variety in my opinion.

I'm starting to enjoy it a bit more now. Although I'm getting bored of the story and just skip through them now and just complete the missions after. As far as I'm concerned I buy games to play them...not to watch as if its a movie.

Refusing to pay 3.33 a month for an online service that is 1,000,000 times better than the freebie Playstation Network is ridiculous.

Oh and the reason the PS3 is so **** is that it's easier to code for the 360 whereas the PS3 is notorious for being a bit of a pig to program for, hence slight disparancies in the PS3 version.

Console snobbery is a bit gay really, and to be honest the online modes for both aren't a lot different.

I, and nobody i know, have ever had any problems playing ps3 online, what exactly do you get for paying the extra on 360 ??

Add to that the 'hidden' costs of bringing the xbox up to the same level as the ps3 and you will find the xbox is actually more expensive !!

Argos - 35. I think you have to reserve on their website and pick-up in a store to get that price. I usually hate Argos but they seem to be pretty good for games at the moment.

It's been out a couple of months so you may find cheaper elsewhere.
